Opportunity to Join Point Cook VIEW Club


Point Cook VIEW Club is calling on members of the community to consider volunteering for children’s education charity, The Smith Family, as part of National Volunteer Week (16-22 May).

VIEW (Voice, Interests and Education of Women) is a leading women’s organisation with close to 300 clubs across Australia, all dedicated to supporting children in need with their education through The Smith Family. Members do this through community fundraising, spreading awareness, and volunteering.

One of the key themes for National Volunteer Week this year is about bringing people together through volunteering, which Point Cook VIEW Club President Ella Wood said is more important than ever before.

“Last year, COVID meant we couldn’t have that hands-on connection with the community, which was really hard for a lot of people.

“Volunteering is a great way to get back out there, make friends, and feel like you’re really making a difference to the lives of young people and their families,” she said.

Members of Point Cook VIEW Club volunteer for The Smith Family by sponsoring 6 Learning for Life students. Ella said “There are many opportunities for people to help out”.

“We are always looking for women to join us in supporting The Smith Family and we’d encourage anyone interested to get in touch and come along to our next meeting to learn more about VIEW.
While volunteering provides a fantastic opportunity to give back, it’s also about building a community and support network that makes such a positive difference to everyone involved.
